    Does anyone know who’s involved yet, I know people from the area.

    I am still attempting to confirm the information.

    Reports indicate it was the man in Potter Brook who has the fence around his property with all of the bottles tied to it.

    From information we have received (unconfirmed), the man made terroristic threats before the confrontation.

    Latest information was that a neighbor reported police to have the home surrounded at 9pm last evening, but were silent.

    I’ll definitely keep you posted as soon as I know more.

    heard gun shots at 11:30 last night went to bed after. havent heard anything since then.
